After using water & RA to shape the molt;

I use water w a drop of dish soap to wet the molt. Then I sex the tarantula. I have a piece of foamboard i use for molts. From there I put pins under the legs and then stuff the abdomen w colored cotton. After a day it's dried in that position. Then I pin it in a shadowbox. So far I have one stirmi alone in a shadowbox and am using the other as my other t's molt. So far there's an avic, B albo and A seemani. They are held in by pins, so I can carefully reposition them by size in the future.

There are video's on youtube showing how to do it. Doesn't look too difficult.
